craft_media_hero You can find the Comstock one online for free download as a PDF. I don't remember where I got it, but I searched "free comstock download" or "free handbook of nature study download". *may have been through the amblesideonline links*

We have printed out the section on birds, and it's very readable with two document pages on shrunk onto one sheet of paper, printed on front and back---maybe 25-30 pages? I get "free" printing at my school so this is more economical for us. And then we only use paper for what we are actually studying at the time.

We use the Comstock book in conjunction with the Burgess Book Bird; it would probably work well with the Burgess Animal Book, too (there's lots of science/nature study tucked into the Burgess stories).

Jennifer3141 You are very welcome, Betsy. I first learned about it from this board. We may have to replace it someday because we're wearing it out!!
